"Fast paced environment with interesting technical challenges. Excellent peers. Disconnected upper management is problematic. Immediate managers somewhat better, but could use a reality check. Overall, a bit above the average job."

"Websense is a great product with a lot of potential but the current organization is falling apart since being bough by a 3rd party and going private. There is little care expressed in doing a good job. The one thing that keeps you driving is your co-workers that you are in the ditch with each day. They make it worth doing your best to work as a cohesive team."
